Premier League Darts: How Barney and Lewis could get ‘judged’
The 2015 Premier League Darts is about to reach a nail-biting climax at the end of the first phase and any of the five men in the bottom half of the standings could still be culled on ‘Judgement Night’.
As if the audience crammed into Manchester’s Phones4u Arena will need any invitation to ramp up the excitement, but the fact that the reigning champion and a double PDC world champion could be ejected after week nine, only adds to the drama.
A win for either Raymond van Barnaveld (7/4) or Adrian Lewis (11/10) would see the titans claw their way back to safety at the probable expense of Peter Wright, but should their patchy form continue it could be curtains for both.
Not out of danger himself, Snakebite will have something to say as he takes on the Jackpot only a point in front, while Barney has the unenviable task of taking down the Flying Scotsman, aka current world champion Gary Anderson, in the form of his darting life.
In a scenario where both big boys lose, rock-bottom Belgian Kim Huybrechts could even pull off the greatest of escapes, as our below infographic featuring a series of potential permutations displays.
